When biologists say the pacu fish eats nuts, they may be correct in more ways than one. The pacu, a toothy fish that can weigh up to 55 pounds, has been spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois, KSDK reports.

Responding to a report that a fisherman had reeled in a piranha on June 7, lake superintendent Jim Caldwell brought the fish to the Illinois Department of....

Smart Stuff About Racing on Hot Days...

collapseBy Patrick McCrann, Endurance Nation (for Xtri.com)

We are entering the hottest part of the season: July and August. Pretty much wherever you live you'll be experiencing some flavor of heat, humidity or both. It's time to step away from your race pace calculator and take a healthy dose of reality: there's simply no way you can race at your peak potential if your body isn't 100% ready for the conditions.

The finish line of every triathlon is littered with bodies of athletes who "coulda shoulda woulda" had a great race if not for failing to address a specific challenge that arose...

G-Man Stats: A Nerd's Eye View...

logoGraniteman - Clearwater Preview - July 14-15 will be the busiest weekend of Minnesota's tri season. Approximately 3500 Minnesota triathletes will race on Saturday, a day that features three popular and well-established events: Life Time - Minneapolis, Timberman and Graniteman - Clearwater. The combined ages of these annual classics is 48 years. Another 1500 will race on Sunday (Heart of the Lakes and TriTonka).

Today we discuss the G-Man Series' flagship race: the 9th annual Graniteman, an event that spent six seasons at its original venue in Rockville near St. Cloud. In 2010 it was moved to a superior venue in Clearwater, located midway between St. Cloud and the Twin Cities....

Timberman Preview - Heidi. Suzie. Ann. If there was such a thing as the fabled "Three Musketeerettes," these girls would be it, er, them (?).

We're talkin' 'bout Heidi Keller-Miler, Suzie Fox and Ann Snuggerud, a trio of very, very fast triathletic Chaskans who do that "all-for-one-and-one-for-all" thing; girls who are known throughout the land for their speed and comeliness. If they were the candy bar,...

A Burrito of Small Town Charm....

holtRace Preview - Historically, Heart of the Lakes Triathlon has attracted an (amateur) field that was as deep, often deeper, than those lured by the larger and more nationally renown Life Time-Minneapolis Triathlon.

That will not be the case this year. The races are on the same weekend--next weekend--and LT-Mpls will clearly have the more talented of the two fields. Minnesota's premier triathletes --Hedge, PP, Payne, CY, Boots, Ruth, all of whom are worthy of USAT AOY consideration--will be at Lake Nokomis, not Annandale. (PS - Kortney Haag, Steph Solfelt and David Holden will also be at Life Time.)

This, however, will not diminish HOLT.
